coast to hinterland – eurobodalla

This lovely little collection of poems were captured at the New South Wales South Coast shire of Eurobodalla. The paperback version will be ready for print first half of 2023. We have a lovely collection complementary Ku Pin brooches in the pipeline as well. We are still considering which local charity would be best suited. An update will be given as soon as we find one. Until then, please enjoy these little poems.

grazed knees
the skate trick gone wrong

not for sale
the minimalist art
of fishing nets

oblivious to billy tea
wallabies graze away

rocks frame
a dampened cormorant 
inviting sun across her wings

salt-worn jetty
Gran's sandy toes
scratching mine

stranger's footprints
to the water's edge
~ a lone surfer

hills ease into a setting sun
~ bottle of the best bubbly

the incoming tide
waving goodbye
to sandcastles

We are pleased to announce that three of the haiku from our upcoming eurobodalla collection were chosen for Canberra’s Poetic City Festival – Haiku 4 You tear-off-haiku poster installation between March 15 – April 26, 2021.

The selected haiku were rotated with other poets’ verses on posts, windows, walls and boards around Canberra for passers by to tear off and enjoy.
